SKIPPER'S UPDATE

 

Firstly, may I offer my congratulations Lady Mary – winner of The Cork of the Broads!

 

Ruth and I are taking every opportunity to get out on the water, the peace and quiet, the wildlife, good weather is making a welcome release from lockdown.

 

We have received the following advice from Broads Beat :-

·         No overnight stays

·         No rafting up together

·         Adhere to the 2m rule while mud weighting

Otherwise we may carry on with our sailing.

 

While the Broads are so quiet the concerns raised by the RYA about the need to be rescued would apply so two local members of EACC have offered to provide support for you, in the way of every day help.  They cannot assist in emergencies or for health problems but if you need to be pulled off the mud or something similar then call Tom Moore (07802 584999) or Ian Patience (07860 658430), they will tell you if they are able to help.   Rough area limits are Womack, St. Benet’s and Acle Bridge so basically the home waters of the club.  I hope this may give confidence and support to those who may not otherwise risk going out.   I really recommend getting out on the rivers while there are no hire boats about.
